Publisher Comments:

An irresistible Halloween tale by one of Scholastic Press' most gifted storytellers.

Michael McKenzie and his sister Hazel are awakened a few nights before Halloween by growling and howling. The next morning, they find their front yard in shambles, and a small bundle cowering on their doorstep. It's a puppy! A cute, darling little mutt they decide to call Angel. They soon learn, however, that Angel is no ordinary puppy, especially when the moon is full..... Hoffman and her teenage son's delightful tale of the challenges of owning a were-puppy is charmingly illustrated by acclaimed artist Yumi Heo.

Review:

"In the eerie beginning to this 'werepup' tale by Hoffman (Aquamarine) and her son, two children discover the 'garden... trampled, the porch steps chewed into splinters' and a 'darling puppy' in a basket. The children artlessly name the white terrier Angel. When Angel demolishes their kitchen on a moonlit night, they follow his footprints to the home of a stock character — the witchy, misunderstood spinster — and there discover an antidote for 'moondog' mania. Yet readers never witness Angel's Jekyll-to-Hyde transformation on Halloween, and what the text suggests, Heo's (Sometimes I'm Bombaloo) nave art fails to provide. After a howling start, this tale unfortunately ends with a whimper. Ages 4-8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)
